About Ritmüller RS-160 Pianos
The Ritmüller Superior RS-160 is made by the world’s largest piano manufacturer, Pearl River.
The Ritmüller full sound range is even and consistent, with a bright treble, a full tenor, and a rich base. They have an even and sensitive touch, providing you with a perfect performance.
Whether you are a beginner or a professional musician, Ritmüller pianos make an excellent choice.
Ritmüller has established itself as a class-leading range of upright and grand pianos. They make careful selections of materials and use the latest production processes. Attention to detail on each piano is second to none, and they don’t use any outsourcing in their piano production. This full control over the manufacturing process ensures a consistently high-quality piano.
Ritmüller uses seasoned hardwoods of the highest quality for each application in every piano. They make Grand Piano rims from walnut, a dense hardwood. The result is a warmer, richer tone that sustains for longer. They use rock maple to craft the bridges and pin-blocks, and close-grained, high-quality northern spruce to create specially engineered soundboards. Using high-quality wood creates a superior quality musical instrument that will last a lifetime.
Top Class Soundboard
Pearl River soundboards use 100% close-grained high altitude northern spruce. A solid spruce core ensures maximum transference of energy across the soundboard. As a result, the solid spruce core brings a lively tone and responsiveness which is normally only associated with top-class piano manufacturers.
Each face of the solid spruce soundboard also has an offset thin epidermal layer of spruce. This helps prevent the fear of cracking associated with some older pianos. Extreme climates or centrally heated homes lacking humidity control can cause this. Unlike many other entry-level new pianos, Pearl River soundboards resist this cracking and maintain a beautiful tone throughout the life of the piano.
Pearl River uses cut-thread tuning pins, which provide more precision and control to the piano technician. This allows for better and longer-lasting tuning. Likewise, the use of high-quality German piano wire also gives a clear tone and tuning stability. They copper wind the bass strings using the latest machines regulated to precise tolerances. This ensures clear and resonant bass registers.
For the finish, ‘static UV application’ gives the pianos a more durable and fade-resistant topcoat. Repeated sanding and buffing by machines in environmentally controlled conditions ensure the highest quality finish for the entire cabinet.
